Am I Owed $10,000 After a Car Crash in Florida?

Posted on January 12, 2017

After a motor vehicle accident in Florida, you may be wondering if you’re entitled to the $10,000 maximum benefits you pay for through Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage.

As you probably already know, PIP is “no-fault” insurance that covers a percentage of your medical bills and lost wages resulting from an auto accident, regardless of who is found to have caused the accident. PIP covers 80 percent of medical expenses, up to $10,000 minus your deductible. PIP also can pay 60 percent of lost wages resulting from the accident injuries.

So the short answer is no, you won’t receive a $10,000 cash payment after a car crash. Your insurer will cover 80 percent of reasonable, necessary medical expenses, and you may receive a payout if your doctor says your injury prevents you from working. That payment would not exceed 60 percent of those wages.

But the fact remains, you were seriously injured in an auto accident in Florida. What do you do now? Attorney Eric Canter has been handling car accident claims in this state for decades. He can determine if you have a case to pursue maximum compensation. Once PIP coverage has been exhausted, or in the event your injury is considered permanent or causes significant scarring or disfigurement, you can usually pursue compensation in a claim against the at-fault driver.

You can rely on Mr. Canter for honest, straightforward answers about your case. He will determine if you have a claim in the first place, and then he can build an agressive strategy for pursuing maximum injury compensation on your behalf. He has several office locations throughout South Florida to increase the availability of his representation.
